Don't know if you are Mexican but I see that Gamboa is the clear favorite among my Mexican brothers. Rigo on the other hand is less popular with the Mexicans but more popular within other Nationalities. Gamboa's agressiveness, slickness and explosive power captivates the audiences while Rigo is more for the fans who appreciate the sweet science.

Glad you mention them but they are clearly all out of Gamboa's league. Lara and Solis are very solid ( more Solis than Lara ) but a couple of steps below. Jhonson ( spelled like that ) is a bit below Lara.

But I have to state something very important here. While Gamboa has probably the most natural talent and physical gifts out of all the current Cubans, he has always stayed 100% focused and training year round ( a big issue with the Cubans ) while the rest can't match him in that department with the exception of probably Rigo. So, dedication and focus is also a major role and Gamboa has stayed sharp in that area.

What are Solis and Johnson doing now?

Didn't Rigo already prove that when he beat Gamboa in the amatuers?

Gamboa's a better fighter, it's plain as day. He would have had no troubles with a guy like Marroquin. Expect Rigo to struggle vs old man Poon.

This is just a shake off the rust fight for Gamboa but vs the same level of competition Gamboa has always been better. Gamboa is a fututre p4p #1 type talent.
